Sara's Story

This is Sara, Sara tragically lost a two year battle with a rare form of colon cancer at the age of sixteen in 2001. Sara was a unique individual with a radiant smile and infectious and caring personality. She is the inspiration behind this charity, which runs a holiday retreat in Crete offering respite for children and young people with cancer and their families.

Our mission is to give families from the UK, affected by the devastating impact of cancer, a much needed break from long hospital stays, traumatic medical procedures and cancer related treatments – so that they may spend quality time together recuperating and enjoying life as a "normal" family – strengthening relationships and creating lasting happy memories.
